PVL is certainly a better solution than fixed frame solar panels. From the technical specifications:
Thin film amorphous PV Solar Laminates are flexible solar modules that are bonded directly to the roof. No glass. No frames, no support structure. Using PV Laminates is not only better for your wallet, it is also better for the environment. It takes less energy and few materials to produce a PVL laminate than what would be required for a crystalline module of the same power, making it a more sustainable solution.
What a great example of Kiwi innovation.
